Getting an American tourist visa is sometimes difficult. Tourists from Third World countries are considered as potential immigrants by American authorities.
Therefore, in order to get the tourist visa, we will have to present at the embassy a series of documents that certify and prove that our only interest is to travel for a few days and that we need to return for work, social or legal reasons, among others.
Along with those documents we must enclose a work verification letter, which will show we have a work commitment with a company or institution in our home country. Thus, American authorities will know that we only mean to go on holidays or visit someone, and that we have the pressing need to return to our home country. In this article we present you some model work verification letters to get the American tourist visa.
